SNAKE

I based this stop-motion off the popular/classic computer game, Snake. Everyone has played Snake at some point in their life, so I figured this would be a topic everyone can relate to.

How to make a stop motion

  1. Think of an idea. Think of something that you can represent by taking multiple pictures with the object barely moved. Previously, I've done such things as Lego men and Goldfish crackers. Moving objects on a whiteboard is good for beginners.
  2. Gather materials. Make sure you have a SD card with lots of space left.
  3. Prep your camera. Set the ISO very low so the pictures process quickly. Like I said previously, make sure you have enough room on the SD card for lots of photos.
  4. Take pictures! Take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, move it a little, take a picture of your object, rinse and repeat many, MANY times.
  5. Put the photos into a video editing tool. I use Microsoft Movie Maker Live- It's not pretty or fast, but it gets the job done.
  6. Save the movie. Then put it on YouTube and put the link in the comments!
